Refactored #020: “Three and a Half Resume Boosters”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • Frank proffers three résumé boosters in his not-so-humble opinion. Or is it four?
    1. Experience freelancing, or bootstrapping a startup
    2. Open Source involvement - particularly creating & maintaining
    3. Writing articles, blogging, publications, documentation, patents (*gasp*), et cetera
    4. Demonstrated discipline in testing, and in particular TDD
  • Frank slams Chris for being too litigious. Chris has no good comeback and resorts to a bevy of logical fallacies to defend himself.
  • Michael Gerber has entered the chat as Chris invokes the The E-Myth: Revisited.
  • Chris can only remember two of the Three Virtues:
    1. Laziness
    2. Impatience
    3. Hubris
  • Chris gushes over his new Moonlander, but has a more equivocal review of the AirPods Max.
  • Frank thinks learning a new language is no big deal, bruh. Chris agrees, but it’s more complicated than that - what about the frameworks, libriares, and idioms?
  • The pick of the week is the Moonlander Mark I by ZSA Technology Labs.
  • … and much more!
